Hosted by Fairfield County’s Community Foundation, Giving Day is a 24-hour online event to “Give Where You Live” and celebrate our work, and the work of all local nonprofits. We invite you to be a part of this fun, exciting event. Last year, $1.25 million was raised for 410 local nonprofits! Not only will your gift help us reach our goal, but it may qualify us to win additional grant prizes. Gifts of any size can make a HUGE difference. (The minimum gift allowed is $10.) Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay in the loop as Giving Day draws near. Don’t forget to follow all of the action with #FairfieldCountyGives.
On FC Gives Day itself, check our Facebook page frequently for live video from our kids, great stories from DYS alumni, and the chance to win a baseball signed by former Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera or a pair of tickets to a New York Knicks game! Then “Give Where You Live” to help us raise $10,000 to keep our youth programs going— because they work! A link to our giving page will be posted here and on our Facebook and Twitter accounts as of 12 a.m. March 9. Get ready to give!
